    is your desktop cleanup wizard on? if so that might be doing it.
    Could you clarify what you mean by setting them to their defaults? Do you mean their location on the screen? Or if they exist or not?

    more information

    I will tell what i did by setting them to their defaults

    suppose we have a winzip icon changed to IE icon. Then I restored to their original icons in the folder options. But even then it happens.

    The strange thing here is that it happens only during night time around 8 or if i use the PC for a long time without break.

    I don't remember what the registry cleaner in xp is called, it should be somewhere in your administrative tools. But it sounds like a registry bug to me.
